Wow, who’d have thought that our very own Governor, Kathleen Sebelius, would have been less than forthcoming when asked about her relationship with, and the money she’s accepted for her various campaigns from her pal, George Tiller.
Sorry Governor, and not that it matters to you, but a lot of us just aren‘t buying it. Just like we didn’t buy it we when you said it was just an over-sight when you had to catch up on the back taxes you owed. If a regular guy like, say, myself were in such position, we’d probably be sitting in jail right now. But I know, like always, you’ll be given a pass. No matter what you do or what you say, your supporters are okay with it. Whatever.
Sorry, I just wanted to get that off my chest. What I really wanted to talk about today is our new president and his predecessor. You know, President Wonderful and President Horrible.
Remember after the attacks of 9-11 when President Horrible authorized the use of wiretaps in an effort to ward off future terrorist attacks. Remember that? Remember how he was accused of trampling our constitutional rights and all that stuff. Remember how he was compared to Hitler and Joseph Stalin once the media got wind of this practice?
It’s funny. Now that President Wonderful is doing the exact same thing, and some even say he’s expanded the program, and all of a sudden, it‘s okay. President Wonderful’s supporters are saying things like, well, it only makes sense that the President should have the ability to track groups of people that want to do us harm. Hmmm, weird.
How about President’s Horrible’s out of control spending. His administration spent money like there was no tomorrow. The country was outraged. Remember that? Remember how they stood shoulder to shoulder from the rooftops to denounce our crippling national debt? Remember how they cried at the top of their lungs that it was unfair to dump such a burden on future generations.
Now we have President Wonderful’s economic policies that have already tripled if not quadrupled, President Horrible’s national debt (can you say, multiple trillions) that will probably be passed on to our great-great-great grand kids and somehow, it just makes sense. President Wonderful’s supporters love to claim he’s doing the only thing he can and is only digging his way out of President Horrible’s mess.
Now I’m not an expert on digging holes and it’s very possible I’m wrong here, but to me it just makes sense that if you start digging in an already huge hole, the only thing you’ll end up with is a bigger hole.
Remember when President Horrible authorized the use of force after the attacks of 9-11? Remember how most of the country stood with him in that decision? Remember when all the politicians, Republican and Democrats alike were lining up to give their speeches? They all wanted to be seen as being tough on terror. Remember that?
And now all the sudden, President Wonderful has authorized the use of force against a bunch of ignorant pirates who believe that somehow they have a right to take over ships at sea and demand millions of dollars for the return of the ships and crews. They’re used to getting their way. They’re used to the crews of the ships they attack just giving up. They’re used to companies simply paying the ransom as a way to get their crews and ships back.
Here’s what these ignorant fools aren’t used to though. They’re not used to dealing with Americans. And they’re sure as hell not used to dealing with the United States Navy and the Navy Seals that brought an abrupt end to their little party earlier this week.
And it was all brought directly to them by our very own, President Wonderful, who ordered the use of force and the U.S. Navy, who executed that order.
Mr. President, thank you, you definitely got this one right.
